Solution Comparison

After obtaining the set of SmartRecut solutions, it is an essential task to compare them to select one or several best. HP Carbon provides tools for this comparison. But these tools separately or combined not always provide the best experience for solutions comparison task. The OctoNus Cutwise online service offers an extended set of tools for presenting and comparison of brilliants and their models. HP Carbon supports integration with Cutwise: the models from HP Carbon may be sent in one click to the Cutwise where they can be further visualized and analyzed with the rich set of tools.

One of the main advantages of Cutwise is new generation of virtual films. They are renderings of future stones, indistinguishable from the real DiBox2 films for both Round and Fancy cuttings. This allows effective visual comparison of future solutions. Moreover, the additional visual metrics are built on the basis of the films and comparison by these metrics become available. The Cutwise uses special film generating systems that have a naturally high consumption of the hardware resources and time. As the Cutwise cloud keeps film calculations server-side, it frees up resources of the HP Carbon machine as well as the time of an operator.

The Cutwise has a modern web interface. It includes advanced, effective tools for:

Also, being accessible via Internet 24/7, Cutwise is a great place to share created stone collections. You can share them with the colleagues to demonstrate stones and delegate or share decision making responsibilities. You can also present full stone information to future customers.
